Although they initially lasted just two and a half years and produced only four singles and one studio album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols, they are considered one of the most influential acts in the history more.

They're very good but I have to admit johnny rotten and Sid vicious are overrated. Steve jones and Paul cook don't get much respect. Neither did the original bassist glen mattock.

Couldn't sing couldn't play Sid vicious seemed like a moron, there were so many other great punk bands The clash, ramones to name a few - ChatonNoir

Sid is overrated. Anarchy in the UK is still awesome, though.

Really I need to comment on this band, listen to their music... Enough said

62 Rammstein Rammstein Rammstein is a German Neue Deutsche Härte and Industrial Metal band consisting of Till Lindemann (vocals), Richard Kruspe (guitar), Paul Landers (guitar), Oliver Riedel (electric bass), Christoph Schneider (drums) and Christian Lorenz (keyboard), that formed in 1994 in Berlin . more.
63 Limp Bizkit Limp Bizkit Limp Bizkit is an American nu metal band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 1994. Their lineup consists of Fred Durst, Sam Rivers, John Otto, and Wes Borland.

Might not be overrated because many people know they suck

So good... the highlight of the music who shaped me into who I am today.

64 Disturbed Disturbed Disturbed is an American heavy metal band from Chicago, Illinois . The band comprises vocalist David Draiman, bassist John Moyer, guitarist Dan Donegan, and drummer Mike Wengren . They are known for songs like "Down With the Sickness" and "Stricken" .

Never even heard of them so they can't be overrated.

65 Slipknot Slipknot Slipknot is a Nu Metal band formed in 1995 from Iowa . The band released their first album in 1999 and was well received by critics and fans. The group gained success after the release of their second studio album, "Iowa". more.

66 Journey Journey Journey is an American rock band that formed in San Francisco in 1973, composed of former members of Santana and Frumious Bandersnatch.

While their music is good, I do not think they are amazing as everyone says. "Don't Stop Believin'" already sounds like a cliche song already.

Personally, I think they are one of the most overrated out of all the classic rock bands.

REMEMBER, Overrated, Not Worst.

Don't Stop Believing is really overrated. Faithfully and Stone in Love are both excellent, but Don't Stop Believing is so OVERRATED!

'Don't stop believing' is terribly overrated and it's not that good. But it's only one song so...

They are good but way to overrated for one song

68 Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides is an American rock band currently consisting of Andy Biersack (vocals), Jinxx (guitar), Jake Pitts (guitar), Christian Coma (drums) and Ashley Purdy (bass), that formed in 2006 in Ohio. more.

There is one girl in the band, and sadly, you can't tell which one it is.

Note to fans: stop forming your music tastes based on what Hot Topic advertises.

How is this so low on the list?! They're so overrated and the fans are annoying. They compare every single rock band to these... Idiots!

69 Buckcherry

Do they ever actually play anything or do they stand there trying to look badass on the rock movie channel?

70 Panic! At the Disco Panic! At the Disco Panic! at the Disco is an American pop rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2004 and featuring the current lineup of vocalist Brendon Urie, accompanied on tour by bassist Dallon Weekes, guitarist Kenneth Harris, and drummer Dan Pawlovich.
71 Dir en grey Dir en grey DIR EN GREY is a Japanese metal band formed in 1997 and currently signed to Firewall Div., a sub-division of Free-Will.

there are so many annoying fangirls that are interested in looks and trends but without those bands who influenced them like D'ERLANGER, X-JAPAN, those fangirls should realize that this is not the only good band in japan - ronluna

Dir en grey? I wouldn't call them overrated. Just that some fans are annoying. And interested in their looks? That might have been about 10 years ago when they were VK but now they look like a normal metal band, none of them is especially attractive (not even when they were VK), and I appreciate that even not being attractive, people love them because hell, their music is awesome and shouldn't be based on looks. @ ronluna, I love X Japan and I like a few songs from D'erlanger, but DEG was not inspired by neither band. Kyo was inspired by Buck-Tick, so get your facts straight.

72 Oasis Oasis Oasis were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1991. Developed from an earlier group, the Rain, the band originally consisted of Liam Gallagher (vocals and tambourine), Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs, Paul "Guigsy" McGuigan, and Tony McCarroll.

Ugh. If it wasn't for Wonderwall (an already annoying song), this band wouldn't be even included in this list. Why? Because no one would ever care. They're overrated, and yet, so irrelevant.

Boring songs, tried so hard to sound like the Beatles, didn't succeed in that. Yeah really overrated - ChatonNoir

Gotta be the biggest rip off band ever, they claimed to be the modern day Beatles, but really were a third rate Slade. Along with those other two bob British northen bands 'the stone roses' and primal scream. When the British music press starts to get a 'scene going' they champion any third rate chancer"s that starts acting up and drops there trousers for the camera. See Blur, manic street cleaners, pulp, the clash. The list is endless. Someone had to say it.

73 the gazzettE

those fangirls like to see a band with good looking members without the music. their music is good but they forgot other bands which introduced visual kei - ronluna

Not every The gazettE fan is like this. @ronluna, stop judging bands based on their fanbase. You're just like the X fans I hate: Put down other bands so their favorite band looks good. I love X Japan but they're not my favorite. There are tons of bands that aren't X Japan.

Also, there are other bands that founded VK, not just X Japan and D'erlanger. What about BUCK-TICK? What about Luna Sea?!

74 Never Shout Never
75 Breaking Benjamin Breaking Benjamin Breaking Benjamin is a American post-grunge/alternative metal band formed in 1998. The bands members all changed in the time between 2010 to 2014, with the exception of Ben Burnley (Vocals). The Ex-Members included Chad Szeliga (Drums), Aaron Fink (Guitar) and Mark Klepaspi (Bass). more.

Absolutely worthless, generic, unoriginal band that has never done anything we haven't heard before done better by other bands. Their popularity really baffles me.
